Nats sign P Corbin to 6-year deal

Nats sign P Corbin to 6-year deal”

Bryce Harper and Manny Machado are understandably the only two players ranked above him.

Corbin, 29, will nearly certainly get the most lucrative contract of any available pitcher. If deGrom had not put together such a phenomenal season, Corbin would have likely taken home the NL Cy Young award last season due to his strong overall performance.

Philadelphia might be willing to give Corbin his biggest offer since the team is seemingly ready to outspend everyone this winter.

Last week Corbin went on a three-city recruiting tour through Philadelphia, Washington, and NY.

The Washington Nationals signed free agent starting pitcher Patrick Corbin to a six-year, $140 million free agent contract Tuesday, pending a physical exam, according to multiple sources.

Comparatively, National League Cy Young award victor Jacob deGrom and Trevor Bauer were the only two players to rank above Corbin in the FIP category. deGrom had a phenomenal 1.99 FIP and Bauer had a solid 2.44 FIP. In 2018 with the Arizona Diamondbacks, two-time All-Star went 11-7 with a career-best 3.15 ERA along with 246 strikeouts in exactly 200 innings.

The Washington Nationals continue to make a statement of intent this offseason, as they added arguably the market's top starting pitcher, Patrick Corbin. Instead, they missed out on Corbin over a sixth year - a sixth year beyond the current Collective Bargaining Agreement - after spending the offseason saying they need rotation help. The Nationals have a chance to re-sign Harper and pair Corbin with Max Scherzer in the rotation. He had a 3.81 ERA in 111 innings and impressed during Boston's postseason run. The left-handed pitcher has an ERA of 3.91 during his six years in the Major League Baseball, all of which he has spent with the Arizona Diamondbacks. He went 2-1 with two holds and a 1.61 ERA over 22.1 innings in the playoffs.
